When the new earl inherits, poor relation Miss Rebecca Bond must wed immediately or be out on her ear. The only man she’s ever loved is summoned to hear the will—but he already rejected her so soundly that they haven’t spoken in years. Yet who better than a rakish Viscount to teach her how to snare a gentleman who appreciates her charms?

Daniel Goodenham, Lord North Barrows, regrets nothing more than the lost friendship with the one woman who treated him like a man, not a title. Fate has given him the perfect pretext to win her forgiveness—even if it means having to matchmake her to someone else. But now that she's back in his life, he’ll do anything to convince her to choose him instead...

This story was first featured in the Vexed anthology

Romancing the Rogue by Erica Ridley
(Gothic Historical Romance #2)

Romancing the Rogue (Gothic Historical Romance, #2)Rebecca’s life has been lonely, full of heartbreak and disappointments, but it never dampened her spirit, if anything it made her stronger, independent and combined with her keen intelligence and sharp wit, what man could resist her? But, this is historical romance and the London elite would find her behavior unladylike and coarse. Her heart has only belonged to one man, and he had the callousness to turn her away in humiliation. From that moment on, Rebecca would rather be alone, her own woman and NEVER be hurt again. It looks like she may just get her wish until her uncle informs her she has one month to find a husband or he will choose for her . As if she wants to become what modern day times would consider a Stepford Wife.

Re-enter Daniel Goodenham, Lord North Barrows, once her dear friend until he inherited his title and became the Rake of London, a supposed womanizer and all around cad, not to mention a very sought after husband for well-bred ladies. Daniel knows he owes Rebecca an apology, but she steadfastly refuses to accept it, and he continually means one thing and says some of the most foppish things ever. So much for his suave ways with the ladies. The truth is, he loves Rebecca, always has, but he has obligations in London and she is a free spirit who loves the open lands around her. How does he choose between his position and his heart? Why should she believe him when he hurt her so long ago?

Thank you Erica Ridley for another light-hearted romantic tale that is high on attitude, low on stuffed shirts and absolutely NO heaving bosoms or vapors from our adorable and feisty Rebecca! Add in another thank you for putting a Lord in his place, causing him to lose all sense of self and grace as he becomes no more than a mere fumbling boy in from of the woman he loves! No dashing swashbuckler here and he is priceless!

If Erica Ridley’s ROMANCING THE ROGUE isn’t on your to-be-read shelf, add it, we’ll wait! This is a tale only Erica Ridley could tell with such cheeky abandon and in such an entertaining way! I was smiling and smirking throughout!

I received an ARC edition from Webmotion in exchange for my honest review.
